Quaff, South Yarra MELB

Among the various alcoholic beverages one can choose from, be it a sparkling, elegant glass of champagne or a man sized jug of beer, wine would always win hands down in my books. I am a fan of fruity scents, especially when leaves a crisp, mildly sweet aftertaste on the palate.

I have recently attended my first ever wine tasting event held at Quaff in South Yarra. We had an event room to ourselves where we were entertained and briefed by a representative from the Leeuwin Estate.

Scallops - I liked how every meal was tailored to suit the wines that we were tasting. Our scallop was lightly seared and topped with fried shallots.  The dressing was Asian inspired and complimented the scallops as well as our sauvignon well - not overly acidic nor overpowering at all.

Pork belly with potatoe croquette - we tried out a few red blends from the winery and being served this lovely piece of succulent pork was a transition stage for us as we slowly moved away from the white varieties.

Beef with mashed potato - no other way to serve a good class of shiraz. Beef was tender, flavourful while the mashed potato was like cream on the plate.

I was looking forward to what was in store for dessert and was pleasantly surprised to be served a plate of cheese and crackers. Would have liked a few more varieties of cheese on the plate but otherwise, it was a light finish to our evening.

Also worth noting would be our courteous and helpful waiters who maneuvered around us bunch of jolly diners skillfully and for their patience with our requests.
